Core Evolution®

Living the Pulsation of Life

Integrate Your Past • Be in the Present • Shape Your Future

International Institute for Core Evolution® and CoreSoma®
Directors: Siegmar Gerken PhD, ECP, HP and Cornelia Gerken CMP, ECP, HP


Core Evolu­tion is an in­teg­rat­ive, re­la­tion­al, psy­cho­dy­nam­ic, body-ori­ented and mind­ful­ness-centered ther­apy - an in­nov­at­ive ap­proach to a Whole Per­son Psy­cho­logy based on Mind­ful­ness and rooted in the Essence of Being. Its found­a­tion is the com­pre­hens­ive un­der­stand­ing that es­sence and life en­ergy are ex­pressed through our Core - the cen­ter of the in­di­vidu­ated uni­ver­sal life en­ergy, a well­spring of heal­ing, joy, cre­ativ­ity and wis­dom.

Core Evolu­tion ad­dresses the pulsa­tion of life in each of us. Life ex­presses it­self in pulsa­tion. Every breath, every heart­beat, every move­ment, every thought rep­res­ents the flow of life in us. If this flow is dis­tor­ted or re­stric­ted, we limit our per­cep­tion and ex­pres­sion in life. There­fore we re­cog­nize and sup­port the in­ter­con­nec­ted­ness on all levels of our ex­ist­ence.

Core Evolu­tion ad­dresses the whole­ness of a per­son – the per­son­al qual­it­ies and unique po­ten­tial. From this trust in our in­her­ent power of love, good­ness, cre­ativ­ity and ca­pa­city for self-heal­ing, we ad­dress the obstacles and lim­it­a­tions a per­son faces to freely un­fold these qual­it­ies and move to­ward self-real­iz­a­tion – per­son­ally and pro­fes­sion­ally.

EMBODIMENT - At the Crossroad of Light and Love

Come and Move En­ergy and Con­scious­ness into New Di­men­sions

CONNECT With Your Essence and In­ten­tion

STEP INTO Self-Em­power­ment and Mind­ful Pres­ence

BE in the Res­on­ance with the Flow of Life

Love and Cel­eb­rate Life

With your em­bod­i­ment you have and de­veloped the qual­it­ies to lead a life of ful­fill­ment and self-real­iz­a­tion. Often these qual­it­ies could not fully un­fold due to past or present events. Then we ask ques­tions like:

• “How can I let go of pat­terns that limit me?”

• "How can I re-con­nect with my vis­ion and po­ten­tial and be­come the co-cre­at­or of my life?”

•  “Am I in tune with my life’s jour­ney?”

In this In­tens­ive you will find per­son­al an­swers and prac­tic­al solu­tions to these ques­tions.

Siegmar and Cor­ne­lia Gerken are pi­on­eers in the field of Hu­man­ist­ic, So­mat­ic and Transper­son­al Psy­cho­logy and Body-Ori­en­ted and Mind­ful­ness-Centered Ther­apy for over 40 years. Their vast ex­per­i­ence in many fields and tech­niques and their in­teg­rat­ive style al­lows them to draw from a rich re­source of in­ter­ven­tions, that reaches the be­gin­ner on the con­scious path as well as the seasoned prac­ti­tion­er (see ex­ten­ded bio­graphy).

With the con­scious ex­per­i­ence of your Body-Mind Field, you real­ize the unity of all ex­ist­ence, which al­lows you to re­con­nect with your po­ten­tial and to move in­sight and in­ten­tion with the Will of Your Heart™.

For this we util­ize the dy­nam­ic prin­ciples of Core Evolu­tion® and CoreSo­ma®, in­di­vidu­al and group pro­cesses, move­ment, cre­at­ive ex­pres­sion, dreams and mind­ful­ness ex­er­cises, that you can dir­ectly apply in your life.

Enjoy the Medi­ter­ranean am­bi­ence, sunny days, the pool or the sea, gentle even­ings, good food, gour­met wines, great com­pany and all there is - to ex­plore and cel­eb­rate life.

Fee: Check in for the best Early Bird, Stu­dent and Couple dis­count. We are in a fant­ast­ic Re­sort near the sea­side, easy ac­cess from the Rome air­port for the best price we ever re­ceived in Europe.
